I come from a very musical family. And I do mean very. My Dad has been in a band longer than I have been alive, and I remember childhood spent listening to band practice tapes over and over and over again in the car and watching his band rock out in someone's basement. (I wasn't old enough to go to the shows themselves.) My Dad sings, plays guitar and the keyboards, and can even dabble in drums a bit.
His love for music of all kinds definitely rubbed off on me. I listen to everything. My music collection looks like it belongs to someone with multiple personalities, actually. I've got rap and R&B, classic rock, heavy metal, country, broadway tunes, and literally everything in-between.
When I was younger, I used to sing, play guitar, and play piano a bit, myself. Music has always been a huge part of my life, and it seems that there's not a single important memory that doesn't come with its own built-in soundtrack. There are so many songs that take me back to a different place in time, and of course, they bring back all the emotions I felt, too. Music is a very powerful thing, and I truly believe that it soothes the soul and speaks to us in ways that words alone never could.
Now, as a mother, I am delighted to see that my kids love music as much as I do. My daughter in particular. When she was still in the womb, she would "dance" in my belly any time I'd turn The Beatles on. When they were finished, so was she. I don't think this was coincidence. Now at 4 years old, my little girl loves to sing and dance to music of all kinds, and she also has a tiny grand piano and a miniature electric guitar. This thrills me so much, because music is truly one of the greatest pleasures in life, and I am glad she's got such an appreciation for it at a very young age.
